A call to the world to wake up by the young people of Wales

The 2020 Peace and Goodwill Message by Urdd Gobaith Cymru called for people across the world to learn from the COVID-19 pandemic. The call went out to the rest of the world on the 19th of May.

The emergency has highlighted the great faults of modern life, and 55,000 members of the national organisation called upon the leaders of the G20 countries to lead the way and tackle these issues.

On behalf of the organisation, the Chief Executive of the Urdd, Siân Lewis, wrote to the Prime Minister of the UK, Boris Johnson; President of the USA, Donald Trump; President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, and all other G20 country leaders.

The international campaign launched to attract attention to what has been learned from the pandemic, calling it an "awakening to the world" and warns against returning to selfish and destructive ways of the past.
